From what you described it could be that your drain hose is cracked since it is bending on the inside of the machine when you push it in after draining the water.An other possibility could be a clamp failing or th connector on the drain pump that is cracked.
To solve the problem would be to dissmantel the machine to assess the machine on the in side for any devects.
One other thing to check for is the plug on the end of the drain hose,is it a tight fit because it it could be leaking at the plug.
If you think it is not tight enough use a cable tie to tighten it and see if the leak will stop.
There is a fluff filter in the bottom left hand corner behind the flap. have a small tray, like a baking tray underneath it and open the flap with a flat lever or the miele yellow key. Turn the tap about 1/4 of a turn and collect about a litre of water from the unit. when it has stopped draining unscrew the tap all the way out and clean the fluff filter which is the tap in your hand. also have a look in the hole and you will see the drain pump. make sure this is free of any foreign particles and then re-screw the tap back making sure it is tight.
To avoid the smell in the unit run the machine on a few 95c washes. you can use a cleaner or just white vinegar as a cleaning agent. after every wash keep the door open for about 30 mins to let it dry out as shutting the door is then a perfect enviroment for bacteria to develop and the smell.
Also check the door seal for any foreign particles every wash.
I have done it. I had someone fix my machine once and they put it on wrong so I had to take it out and put it on correctly. The only tricky part is getting it in place around the drum. That takes a bit of care to do it right. Then clamp it down with the skinny clamp that comes with it.
